Too Much The Need... - Poem by Kevin Carney

Too much the need…
The question still abounds…
Was it too much to realize the truth…
Where was I tonight?
I questioned the heavens.
I prayed to see that shooting star…
To make that wish that could never be.
Looking for an answer…
Of what should be.
Only to be left empty, when I thought I had it all.
You stood on the other side…
Trying time after time to try to step over…
The unseen line….
Between what could be flesh and what could be fantasy….
Maybe you should have just walked away…
We walked through the shadows…
Told the lies...
Not realizing it would hurt us in the end.
We might as well knelt down on broken glass…
In all the time we had together…
Spilling the blood of each other.
The actions and words we forced upon each other…
All in the name of what?
Love a four letter word…
It might as well have been fxxx…

    Your touch is stunning Kevin
    your gift a joy to know
    a true walk through light and dark in life.10++
